PC looks sharp while both console versions look blurry. Probably because the consoles are running in sub hd.
ziggurcat  +   920d ago
obviously the PC version is going to look better...

and how is 720p sub HD?
konnerbllb  +   920d ago
It's not native, it's upscaled.
Welshy  +   920d ago
At this point we still care? Seriously?

Anyone with half a brain knows by now that Ultra PC setting will look better than PS360, that's just common sense now.

720p is Sub HD
1080p is FULL HD

@Dylila To me it's not that the PS4 embarrassed PCs it's just that the games embarrass PC. It's up to developers to create the game and if developers are just porting some half ass game from console to PC of course it's going to be limited and look like crap compared to if it was PC exclusive with real effort placed into the game. We all know that a game built 100% for PC would have to be dumbed down just to run on a console. I'm sure Killzone would run amazingly on PC if ported right but if it was built for PC then it could be so much more.

PC hardware surpasses consoles. Even if the PS4 is next-gen technology, the hardware is still relatively mid range this gen. It's also because of pricing.
Can't wait to see pc games without 7 year console holding it back and also ps4 is x86 so great for pc and ps4. Lets hope 720 will not hold everyone back.
Also Dylila is crazy.. BF3 looks better than kilzone..

and is 64 player on a huge map.

yeah and is a 2011 game.

You are typical Ps3 fanboy. Please stop give a bad name for Sony.

Hurry up and get here, PS4.
Braid  +   919d ago

Good luck with that. I have the same graphics card that's used on the PS4 (7850) and 8 gigs of DDR3 RAM plus 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM on the GPU, not only my PC struggles to run Crysis 3 at max settings but also I have yet to see a game with an extreme visual fidelity like Killzone Shadow Fall on my system.

Crysis 3 is a gorgeous looking game but it's not a next-gen title. I'm sure Crytek can do wonders with PS4 but people claiming that Crysis 3 looks better than Shadow Fall are either in denial or have terrible visual senses. Crysis 3 is basically Crysis 2 on steroids while KZ Shadow Fall has a never seen before geometry detail, view distance and millions of polygons all over the place. Hell, even the bricks on the ground are perfectly modelled, it's not your tpyical tesselated/parallax mapped objects. You really can not compare ANY current-gen game with that, that's simply another league and a step forward to CGI-quality graphcis.

I know PC gamers have been messing around with DX11 visual effects for a long while now as I tend to have a good gaming rig right next to my consoles as well, but next-gen games are more than that. I know they look kind of similar to PC gamers as you're familiar with those effects already but the devil is in the details, not in the effects. People comparing Crysis 3 with next-gen games are actually comparing apples to oranges, I'm afraid.

It's the low res textures that make the console versions look like trash relative to the PC release.

The 360 has held the PS3 back "ALOT" This Gen. Not anymore with PS4!!!!

I can't believe KZSF and every next gen game showed on the 20th has open my eyes! even BF3 running on Ultra high look ugly now!
I understand you PC gamer's now! but know you are been the one who can't see the true!
KZSF is miles ahead and don't hate the game or the PS4 be a gamer!

I still cannot justify spending so much money on a "rig" for the improvement I see on PC....
TruthbeTold  +   920d ago
Funny thing is, that's what a lot of people will say about the difference between Wii U and PS4.

Beyond a certain point graphics-wise, the dollars spent just don't justify the on screen difference.
xPhearR3dx  +   920d ago
This video is a horrible representation of what the PC version actually looks like. Here's some screens of the game maxed out running at 1080p (Click the gear to show full resolution). Even these screens don't do the game justice as it looks even better depending on what type of TV/Monitor you're using. That, and seeing it run in real-time.


Oh, and this pic. Yeah, doesn't look ANYTHING close to this on consoles.

Shows how amazing Beyond: Two Souls's faces look on PS3, considering it's running on 7-year old hardware.


What's even more amazing is that the PS4 will shame this level of facial detail! It's going to be crazy to see what Quantic Dream and other developers achieve in the coming years.

TruthbeTold, how can that be so when we haven't seen the price of the PS4. You fuckwit.
Wii U is $430 RRP. I highly doubt the PS4 will be much more than that. (Especially considering Sony said they want the price reasonable.)
Triggytrolls  +   918d ago
Games look a lot better.
Games are cheaper.
onyoursistersback  +   920d ago
see, this is what i always talk about with Crysis.
its all about the looks of the game.....
back and forth, back and forth about what looks better.
yes we all know it looks great (on pc, cuz on ps3...that thing is a joke)!!!

but lack of gameplay really missing...this game is given to much attention then it should.
CryofSilence  +   920d ago
It probably doesn't help that this video is sub HD and internet compressed. ;P
scott182  +   920d ago
It's starnge, I was expecting the PC version to look way better. It looks better but not to the level I was thinking it would.
Autodidactdystopia  +   919d ago
please internets catch up to the fact that youtube and other streaming sites compress about 80 percent of the original quality out of videos that you upload. :(

It does look better you just cant see that it looks better due to compression.
Statix  +   920d ago
I think the console versions are looking pretty good considering they're 7-year old hardware. Aside from some extra blurriness, they look rather similar.
Tyre  +   919d ago
Crysis 3 is by far the best looking game on the Xbox 360, period. PC will always look better. These comparisons are useless...U need to compare Crysis 3 console version to other console games. Anyways Crytek did a marvellous job on all platforms. Why do people need to bash this game? Everbody should have played this game without prejudice....u will be convinced of it's excellence. Crytek is way beyond most console games...remember EVERYTHING IS REALTIME all the time no pre-baked shadows/lightning/all scenes and backgrounds are realtime objects no paintings as BG. Wake the f up...This game is unprecedented on consoles!!!
Psn800  +   919d ago
They have done a great job on the consoles too .
TRU3_GAM3R  +   920d ago
1 pc
2 ps3
3 Xbox 360
greenpowerz  +   920d ago
You're joking right? Only on N4G. I could see that the PS3 version seemed lowest res even on the 360 web browser and that's saying a lot.
N0S3LFESTEEM  +   920d ago
PS3 and 360 both look like mud... 360 less so.
greenpowerz  +   920d ago
Never said anything different ;)

I just hope you didn't disagree when we agree.

I think crytek will have a say in the specs of the 720 just as epic did with the 360. Crytek and MSFT have been working together in the background for a couple of years now.

I couldn't see any difference between the ps3 and 360. PC looked a bit sharper to me. I think they hyped the graphics of crysis 3 up so much I was expecting more on the PC version. Crysis 1 looks better to me.

RedDeadLB  +   920d ago
In all honesty neither version looks that distinctly better than the other except the higher resolution the PC provides. Everything else is just not significant enough of a difference. I'd take the version that plays best.
Hufandpuf  +   920d ago
PC looks the best.

Jek_Porkins  +   920d ago
Who cares? The game looks pretty good all the way around, but plays like a generic shooter.

I like crysis but crytek should just focus on next gen consoles instead of making sub-hd benchmarks on ps3 and 360.
porkChop  +   920d ago
I think next gen Crytek will go back to the gameplay of Crysis and Crysis Warhead. They had huge open levels for you to play in, and you could literally play any way you wanted. PS4 definitely has the power to do that, and the Xbox 3 likely will as well, so I don't see any reason for them not to do it.
Bathyj  +   920d ago
Its a nice looking game.

AI annoys the crap out of me though.
As long as they have line of sight, those guys see you, even if your far away, and crouched and not moving.

Its not realistic at all and it forces you to over-rely on the cloak.

Im a sneaker and dont like to be seen, so I pretty much dont break cover unless cloaked where as in game like Farcry you could use grass and bushes as cover or just keep your distance and not stand or run in their line of sight and you would be alright.

Ive had guys in crysis they technically could see my ankle on a platform over them or see me in between two barrels from a hundred meters and just immediately shoot. plus as soon as one knows, they all know.

And why just like Farcry which are both heavy stealth games do they not let you drag bodies? Seems a really odd oversight. I can pick up a steel crate but not a body.

Placing emphasis on stuff such as this is so superficial.
Ragthorn  +   920d ago
PS4 is an impressive looking piece so far, but I have to say that PC is, and will always be ahead. I get consoles for exclusives, and only that. Killzone: Shadowfall looks amazing, but is not on par with Crysis 3 on PC with ultra settings. I am ecstatic to play the next installation in the Killzone series though! I don't wanna cause an argument, and that's all. Thank you for reading.
Eyesoftheraven  +   920d ago
I hate so much that stupid shared screen where PC is the left, 360 the middle and PS3 the right to make up one full screen scene. Sure, it proves your editing skills but it's absolutely terrible for comparisons.

lol....they compare the pc version in 720p, i don't know a single person that games in anything less than 1080p, most are at 1200p, 1440p or higher

the pc version of crysis looks better than any ps4 game ever will, why compare it to the 8 year old ps3 and 360

it looks like a psp game to me on consoles
MuhammadJA  +   919d ago
Crysis 3 looks really awesome on PC. Not even Killzone SF comes close to it.
